Welcome to College Prep Biology(Bio) in the 2014-2015 school year!  As its name suggests, this course satisfies the UC (a-g) requirements for a lab course in the biological sciences.

This year I have five sections of Bio, with about 180 students.   I will be using this blog to communicate with my students in many different ways, including:
  • providing an on-line record of course Policies and Procedures
  • making classroom notes available as Power Points downloadable from the blog
  • placing videos shown in class available through Flash sites like YouTube
  • providing images of the course syllabus
  • making important announcements about major assessments
Students typically find this valuable.   I had more than 10,000 hits last year and over 4,000 downloads, mostly from Bullard students, so make sure you check this blog regularly.

Your first set of Biology notes, covering course Policies and Cornell Notes, is available HERE.

Students were previously asked in class to return a 'Course Contract' signed.   A copy of the Course Contract is available on-line HERE.
